Making Your Child Happy on His/Her Birthday

By: Bob Gammit

Birthdays are one of the most important days in a child's life. The anticipation of receiving gifts is one of the reasons why they get excited. The fun party and the friends they will have over make them wake up early and in good mood. Birthday parties then, to be successful must be planned weeks, even months in advance.

Consider the many aspects in a child's birthday party and list them accordingly so that you can organize the materials and activities demanded for each. Here is a list that will guide you in planning the perfect birthday party.

The guest list.

Before doing any real planning, consider first how many people you and your child will be inviting over to the party. Ask him to list down all his buddies that he wants to invite but give him a limit (usually from 20 to 25 friends). The guest list should include factors like your budget and the location.

If this is your child's first to third birthday, you'll have to do the guest list. Remember though that when you invite the kids at a young age, they will probably bring a parent or both, so they should also be included in your budget. Kids turning 8 and above will invite young ones without their parents tagging along.

The party's theme.

A theme holds the whole activity together. It also shows the celebrant's personality. Popular themes include cartoon characters, Disney movies, fairy stories and superhero characters. The celebrant's cake, party hats and party favors will reflect the theme selected.

Invitations and food.

With the theme and guest list already set, invitations should be made and dispersed at least two to a week before the actual date. This will give the invitee a chance to clear the day for any other actions. Also, it's advisable to place an RSVP on the invitation so that you can determine the exact number of people coming.

Food should be fun and appropriate. Younger kids will want simple fare like fried chicken, sandwiches and French fries. Older nippers will probably want more pasta- based food like spaghetti or lasagna. Finger foods are less of a hassle to prepare as well as less likely to make a mess. Remember to keep it simple.

Fun games and party favors.

What's a birthday party without games and a loot bag. Great party favors for girls include pretty jewellery such as Disney enchanted bracelets or necklaces with heart pendants. For the boys, rings with Batman and Superman signs or water squirt rings are fun items that the boys will love. You can even makes these items part of the party's games by including them as prizes or stuffing them inside a piniata.

Make this day special for your kid. A pretty dress will make your daughter the belle of her ball. Why make her more attractive by giving her a gift that will last a lifetime such as a beautiful silver or gold necklace with a heart-shaped locket. This will make her feel very special For the boys, a sturdy pair of shoes will make him happy and a simple silver chain with dog tags as pendant will make him feel cool.
